COVID19 - JORDAN UNEMPLOYMENT RATE REACHES 'HISTORIC HIGH’

In a position paper titled "Unemployment in Jordan: Reality, expectations and proposals", the JEF highlighted the importance of preparing economic and investment solutions to “flatten the unemployment curve” with taking into consideration institutionalising the relation between the public and private sectors, so as to stimulate the latter to absorb more Jordanian workforce. On reality and expectations of unemployment in the Kingdom, the forum said that the rates have continued to grow for the sixth consecutive year reaching 23 per cent in the second-quarter of 2020, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. The JEF expected the unemployment rate to stand at 25 per cent by the yearend as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic that exacerbated the problem due to local and international lockdowns that reduced supply and demand alike.The number of annual jobs that the Jordanian economy provides ranges between 30,000 and 40,000 compared with having some 100,000 job seekers annually, the forum said.
